1) What got you started in acting? When I turned 35 I said “screw this, I want to study acting.” I was a member of a professional women’s organization at the time and one of the members was an actor. I talked to her about how to get started in acting. She gave me Ramona Richards name and that was it.
 
2) Where do you find the inspiration/motivation for a character? In the words of the script. I also like to do a life history of the character.
 
3) Are there any films (past or present) that you would like to be a part of?
Gone With the Wind, Double Indemnity, and  Despicable Me.
 
4) Who is your ultimate dream character to play?
Phyllis Dietrichson from Double Indemnity
 
5) Where do you see yourself in your acting career five years from now?
I see myself winning some awards for my acting. I think working on a TV series would be interesting.

Now, for a few questions with Saphyre Fish.

1) What got you started in art work and drawing?
I’ve been drawing since I was a child, it’s just something that’s always stuck with me. At first, my vent was subconsciously karate when I lived in Washington even though I still drew at the time, just not as much. However, when me and my mother moved to Arizona it was too expensive for us; I got bullied quite a bit at school and it didn’t take long for me to take drawing as a way of taking out my frustrations. I knew better than to start fights, and it didn’t really help stop the harassment but did help keep me level headed. Over time it helped me in other ways like learning.
2) What inspires you?
Mostly music, it helps me get the feeling right in whatever I’m drawing and to keep going when I want to stop. But at the same time I like to draw things that are funny, or new ideas, which can come from anything (recently it’s from the new video game that came out). Sometimes I’d look at a normal, everyday object, and laugh to myself because it’d remind me of something stupid I thought up in the past about it. I guess I just like making people laugh and smile.

3) If you could meet any artist (alive or dead) who would it be and why?
I’m going to be honest here, I don’t really know too much about other artists of any kind. Not out of ignorance, I just don’t really care. I might just be odd but I think it’s a little weird to fawn over people, sometimes it makes me really uncomfortable because those people have their own lives and whatnot, I want to respect their privacy as people. As for appreciation for their works, I just keep it at a distance but if they were there, I’d let them know.

4) Where do you from here-what’s next for you artistically?
Going to be honest again; I have no idea. Mostly I just go with the flow, challenge myself from time to time. Been thinking of taking up animation or 3D modeling on top of what I’m doing now.

Thank you Saphyre! See you on set soon!

Where do I get my steampunk western inspiration?

I get so much of my steampunk western inspiration from Pinterest and Etsy. Or maybe a bit of H.R. Giger.

Oh the talent of the craftsmen!

I love this train and it sparks my ideas for how to dress the train at Old Tucson studios!
